  • We have booked a trip to the train station. Jeep brought us into the National Park on the second hour of the morning. The driver waited in the car loaned us a breathing mask and us. Slow step are output to the crater lasted about 2 Watch. Sunrise on this site has been a great experience. The more we are close to the Lake by the more we felt could not breathe at all locations, or sulfur, breathing masks, the only thing was to try to help čupnúť and breathe slowly. Literally, we were shocked at how local sulfur mining. If you have a chance to go to the crater look, definitely take advantage of it, it's worth it.
